With their new album Unto The Locust set to be released this coming September, it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Machine Head would perform a new song during their Mayhem Fest set. And seeing that the band had already released an advance mix of “Locust,” it was kind of a given as to which new song they’d end up playing.
Nonetheless, it’s pretty cool to see them playing the new single live. Machine Head have performed “Locust” on the first two dates of Mayhem Fest (which kicked off this past Saturday). Though it’s most likely going to remain on the set list for a while, multiple fan filmed videos of the band performing the song have already made its way online. You can watch Machine Head performing “Locust” for the first time in San Bernardino, CA this past Saturday (July 9) up top, while video of the band performing the song again in Mountain View, CA yesterday (July 10) can be seen after the jump.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfvMrOaCjjQ
